The St.John River Society  

About The Society

The St. John River Society exists for the appreciation and wise use of the natural and cultural resources of the St. John River watershed.

The St. John River Society was founded in 1992 by a group of individuals dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of the St. John River and the stewardship of its resources. Today the organization represents the entire length of the St. John River and undertakes programs that will ensure its continued sustainable use and recognition as …” one of the major rivers of Canada”( Hugh MacLennan, Seven Rivers of Canada, 1961).

The Society has four programming pillars based around its mission and continues to develop programs that serve these ends. These four programming pillars are: Recognition, Access, Information and Sustainable Management.
